Why Donate?

Why Donate?

Franciscan Living is a community of approximately 300 people, including our Board of Directors, who engage in programs and support services. Together, we support the organization through program fees and donations that provide scholarships and cover administrative costs. Because we are volunteer-driven, our operational budget is minimal with the majority of funds raised supporting participants.

Light a Candle

Light a Candle at

Lighting candles has long been a sacred ritual in many traditions, marking precious moments in our own and other’s lives to give support, mark an anniversary... a death... a birth... a birthday... healing...friendship...or just to affirm this moment! With gratitude to our friends at, for their beautiful, interactive site we invite you to light a virtual candle for friends, loved ones, our global community, our sister, mother earth, or any other intention.



Franciscan Living is volunteer-driven to ensure that our offerings are accessible and affordable for all who are interested.
